A Lovely Gift and A Completed CAL

I had a lovely surprise in the mail the other day...a lovely parcel from Astri from Apple Blossom Dreams.  It arrived just when I need cheering up the most, I was feeling very sad because my eldest son had got married the day before and I had been unable to attend his wedding.

I was so happy to receive these beautiful things I love them all and believe me they will be well used, so thank you Astri for being so kind and thoughtful. xxx

I have had so much fun following the Crochet Nesting Dolls CAL hosted by Kara from Petals to Picots, 

Matryoshka dolls-cute-easy-crochet-pattern-cal

Here are my finished Matryoshka dolls aren't they cute! I love the baby one the best.  They are very simple to do and they do fit inside each other, however to keep them steady and in shape when they are standing on their own I have weighed the base down with some silver coins, and filled them with some poly fibre stuffing, you can easily pull it all out if you want to fit them inside of each other. The patterns for the four dolls are on Kara's blog if you want to try them for yourself, or just pop along and see all the lovely finished dolls everyone has been making. 

Another stash-buster!

Have a great weekend :)
